Program Notes

The Italian in Algiers

overture

Gioacchino Rossini, composer

The Italian in Algiers, an opera buffa produced in Venice in 1813, was the second of Rossini’s works to achieve great success. Like most of Rossini’s operas, it is no longer in the repertoire, but the sparkling melodies of the overture have made it a favorite on band and orchestra programs.

—Richard Franco Goldman, the Goldman Band
